tv   MONEY With Melissa Francis  FOX Business  April 1, 2013 5:00pm-6:00pm EDT

5:00 pm
smartphone. speak to. david: the number one thing to watch is economist are expecting orders to rise 2.9%. let's hope they do. following a drop of 2% in january. liz: join us now. we are always here for you. money with david shapiro is coming up next. adam: hello, i am adam shapiro. a federal judge ruled that stocks in california can keep making pension payments rather than creditors. more on that in a moment. if you own shares of tesla, you made big money today. it's electric model s savannas topping shares. and you don't always have to be alive to make money. the walking dead and amc have rewritten the cable tv record
5:01 pm
book. last night walking dead season finale scored 12.4 million viewers and it is the most-watched telecast in cable history. despite the record, shares of the networks closed 2% today. the stocks were driven up 25% just this year. even when they say it's not, it's always about "money." ♪ ♪ ♪ adam: a good afternoon. first up, a groundbreaking legal case to tell you about. it affect pensions from coast-to-coast, that includes you. a federal judge ruled that stockton, california, is eligible for bankruptcy protection. this sets the stage for stockton to pay calpers $900 million instead of main pingback almost
5:02 pm
$165 million it owes in municipal bonds. to make sense of this and what it means for you, i am joined by a partner with the strategic media. in a former federal prosecutor. i welcome you both to the show. let me start with mark. the big people that are going to take a head are the insurance companies. should stocks default on their portion of the bond, this is precedent-settingg stockton could choose not to fund their pension obligation. is that acura? >> yes, i think that is one of the things that they will have to do down the road. the judge in this case was always kind of leaning towards bankruptcy. he wanted to get some kind of a decision that is legal issues, they have something to deal with. the creditors are the ones who are going to take a huge cut on what ever kind of renegotiations are going through.
5:03 pm
they have told everybody that pension funds are sacrosanct and they cannot be touched. >> that's right, stockton made the decision to fund obligation to calpers and not perhaps cut back on that and fund the obligation to the bondholders. those who have insurance will essentially be made whole but what is the danger going forward? we have those on the verge of bankruptcy or have declared a form of bankruptcy. will we see this pickup, and who will really be left holding this? >> well, a couple of questions. first of all, in this case, the bondholders and insurance companies are left holding this. the entire state of new jersey in 2018, one third of its entire revenues are supposed to go towards pension obligations. it's a huge crisis. but what bothers me about this is the city is supposed to put
5:04 pm
together a plan of adjustment, how we will pay back their debt. then they make a conscious the conscious decision that we are going to throw the bondholders under the bus. we will continue to pay this fund. and arguably, these guys -- i'm not so sure you can show bad faith. ultimately, someone has to say, wait a second. these programs are a huge anchor around the neck of these municipalities and states. i do not think it is fair to allow these guys to make this decision and then get frustrated adam: i would imagine it would be hard for stockton, california, to ever borrow another cent. they've been borrowing, have they not? >> yes, there was a bond rate of $150,000. talk about brother, can you spare a dime.
5:05 pm
if you don't think for one minute that the city of detroit is watching this closely, you are mistaken. so we have a bankruptcy judge's decision that will allow us to proceed in bankruptcy. these people are going to come in and make a determination. this plan of adjustment has to be fair and equitable. i'm not sure it needs it at this point. adam: would i be accurate to assume that borrowing costs coast-to-coast, even though that could be in good standing? >> without a doubt. if you have a bar like this that is set incredibly low, you get visas like fresno, sacramento, places larger than stockton saying that we would like to have some municipal projects here that will help improve the quality of life. then the bondholders say, what is the point of investing? i think it has huge implications for the bond market. adam: i'm sitting here thinking wow, i'm finally going to be able to make money in bonds
5:06 pm
because interest rates are going to go up if i'm willing to take the risk. you are shaking your head there. am i wrong to assume that? >> i think you may be wrong. the bonds are supposed to be the safest place to put your money. now we are seeing a repayment plan and "the new york times" says they have never seen anything like this ever. it is a real problem. municipalities have the right to do specific service and they can do it with different revenue sources. at the end of the day, as a bond purchaser, why do this? adam: i think the answer to that question is there is always someone willing to take the risk. mark, you get the last word. >> the shame of this is that the attorneys never really delved into the issue of whether calpers could renegotiate on its own. it's an issue of termination, they could go in and stretch out the payments.
5:07 pm
they have the flexibility that bond and mortgage rates do not. adam: gentlemen, we appreciate you being here. this is an issue that we will discuss going forward, detroit is watching this very carefully. have a good evening, gentlemen. investors talked to share in pain over the weekend to celebrate record gains. but let's talk about how you can make some money now for the next three months. will stocks climb higher, or will a market correction bring the bears out of hibernation. jonathan hoenig is here with this topic on what to buy. >> it is great to be with you. adam: i have been listening to people say five to 8% pullback. where should we put our money as we start off the second-quarter? >> i think you should put it in stocks. the biggest advantage you can have is trading with the trend. so even after this great first quarter, the stocks remain
5:08 pm
higher. even today, the market was down a little bit, but there were more new highs new lows. so that is a bullish sign. even the all-time highs, which you referenced a few weeks ago, it is natural to think that this is their high. it is a bullish sign moving forward. it is a great first quarter that we have already had. >> before we get into the specifics, we had a guest on fox business saying that the expectations for earnings is supposed to be about half a percent. our guest is saying that is an underestimate and it will be closer to three or 4%. it sounds as though it will be a good earnings season. would you agree? >> i think earnings will likely be strong. even more than that is the prevailing attitude among most investors, which is doubt. most investors have been ambivalent about stocks.
5:09 pm
they are much more heavily invested in bonds. that is where the risk will be this year. not necessarily the big 29 collapse in stocks. but a pain in the bond market and holding those treasuries save. adam: let's talk about where you would like to see money flow. we see a global spread of money. we saw close to $60 billion. where should the money be going? what you perceive as the strongest? >> a few areas that i am looking at, one is actually japan. an example of how stocks have not always worked in the long-term. they have had a great six month run. i like sports franchises. the average has gone up about 30% in the last year. manchester united is the world's
5:10 pm
biggest soccer team and sports brands. if you are worried about rising interest rates, one that rises with these rates and i like it. adam: okay, getting to a question, what investment is one that everyone should be concerned with? >> for me it happens to be gold. adam: people haven't been talking about, have a? >> they have, gold is a great example where there is much more hope and doubt. a lot of folks have bought gold in anticipation of some sort of a catastrophic collapse and the dollar is strengthening. so i actually think that gold is something to avoid right now.
5:11 pm
i think a local lower from here's the one you think this will go up on unity bonds because of the court ruling in telephone a? >> i do. that is why i think investors should avoid this. as you said in your earlier segment, folks will buy an investment when it offers an attractive yield. all bonds offered a downside risk right now. just like housing and student loans when government gets involved. it almost always follows. that is why we avoid stocks and bonds in the portfolio. adam: jonathan hoenig, make you very much. as he said, equities in 2013. we have three quarters to go. thank you. next, an exit plan for the feds. one of the country's top financial professors knows how to bring the money printing to an end without killing markets. he is here with his details.

5:16 pm
>> what i do know is that this market lives and dies by the last word of the fed and those people have no clue what they are doing. ben bernanke the most dangerous man ever to hold a high financial office in the history of the united states. adam: that was former reagan budget director david stockman not holding back on what he really thinks of the federal banks and the monetary easing. they are pressing ahead with the 85 billion-dollar a month asset purchase program. all experts are talking about is when will it stop and how can it stop about growing the economy and the markets into another recession. welcome to the show, professor, we appreciate being here.
5:17 pm
>> thank you for having me. adam: why do we have to have this exit strategy? >> well, here is the problem. they created about $2 trillion worth of reserves and almost all of it, 1.7 trillion, it is more than required by the banks. they are content with just sitting with those excess reserves. the worry is when the fed finally starts raising interest rates, the things are going to lend out those excess reserves and those could be extremely inflationary and the economy. so the solution that people are talking to, reducing the excess reserves. that requires them to sell
5:18 pm
$1.7 billion from the portfolio, treasury bonds mortgage-backed securities and people say oh, when they are raising interest rates, you'll be dumping trillions of dollars. and there will be chaos. adam: so there is one way to do it, what we are talking about essentially is mopping it up and instead of dumping, perhaps making the banks take this money in the form of capital ratios. is that what we are talking about? >> my proposal is the banks are holding it. but with the federal reserve has power over, what percent of all their deposits that they have to hold as reserves, as they said this at 15%, all of the excess reserves would be used in the market and would not be available for any inflationary
5:19 pm
lending on the part of the banks. now that they have the power to pay interest on those reserves, the banks would've said, that is very burdensome. otherwise it would they would be willing to hold those reserves and substitute for capital. they will be killing birds despite raising those reserve requirements. >> you're talking about eight to 15%. is that correct? >> yes, between that, the fed has a statutory range. although temporarily they can impose even higher limits. i am not saying that they have to absorb every single penny. if they just absorbed maybe $1 trillion, that reduces the amount that they have to get rid of on the other side. they can do a combination. but i worked it out and it will not be all that burdensome.
5:20 pm
they can absorb and prevent what could be a very disruptive exit strategy. adam: i have to plead a little bit of ignorance here. would be a transfer of funds that to the bank, or would they actually have to buy these assets from the fed? is that hell would take place? >> right now they are already holding these reserves voluntarily. the banks are holding $1.6 trillion worth of the reserves. if the banks ever went on a lending spree because they have these excess reserves, our company would be in trouble. what i am saying is that the bank is needs to save your holding these, i am not going to make you have to hold them and i will give you interest. adam: you're talking about the ability to lend about. >> yes, this closes the door on excessive whining. adam: the fed wants excessive
5:21 pm
whining. is that right? i don't see them shutting the door anytime soon. wouldn't dry up liquidity? >> that is when they are going to start raising interest rates, that is when they will start exiting from their portfolio. at that time, they have to put the constraint on london. i think the easiest way for them to do that is to say, okay, now i am going to say that you have to hold this. i will give you some interest on them, so will not be that much every burden. >> okay. >> i think that would make the market happier. the worry about selling $1.7 trillion of bonds onto the market. during the time they will be raising those rates.

more discussion. since friday my phone has been ringing off the hook, e-mails to our saying they're starting to get it, that this is what can happen, particularly with every purpose pipeline, which is what the pegasus is. adam: this is a pipeline used to flow in one direction and now flows and the other. the primary traveling roadway, pipeline for canadian tar sands oil into the united states out of the gulf? >> that was the ruling made by the appellate court around pegasus, but if transcanada get their way this pipeline, the xl or discos coast segment that they're building now, the fastest pace that they can, it would eclipse, i think, with the pegasus is doing. adam: in the keystone pipeline, what transcanada is doing, they used eminent domain to take some of your land so that the bill that portion of it, is that accurate? >> that is and primarily what our case is in court. i believe personally that the pipeline is bad for a lot of reasons. in the legal system yet to distill it down.

5:38 pm
that in general one of the reasons for this disconnect is a weak 55 a strong dollar which is typically not good for commodity prices short-term, but one of the big reasons for this disconnect is the fact that the fed continues to push this market higher by being behind the market and in general investors are waiting for her -- excuse me, are counting on the fed to step in if there is any kind of crack. it has created this unfavorable risk return profile that just is not sustainable over the long term. adam: so let's talk about some of the matters. for instance, copper. all you ever hear is china, china, china. grow, grow, grow. whether you believe the numbers are not, the official government , the p.m. my reading came out. even the hsbc, so shouldn't cover be going higher? >> well, what you are seeing now

ministry, and he was saying that this is the protocol going forward. then he backed off of that, but in actuality this is what they're going to do, is it not? >> we will call him mr. d. what happened here is, you know, if you thought you were a depositor. you think of yourself as a depositor if you have a technical or savings account. then they say, no, you are an investor and will contribute to the bailout. so turning depositors and investors is a really bad idea and anybody who has got a deposit in a bank wants to be assured that they are not going to be told, no, you are an investor now and be handed worthless shares in exchange for what they thought was ready money. adam: in the united states we have avoided this scenario not only because we have fdic insurance, people who have deposits greater than the $250,000 which are insured have never been heard, their funds have been transferred to other banks. they have remained holed.
5:48 pm
we have been able to avoid this kind of scenario accurately, correct? >> yes. in paris, we were pretty specific. after the limit crisis a lot of companies said the half millions of dollars in deposits in banks to meet payrolls and so they offered unlimited insurance on depository accounts that pay zero interest that coverage was ended in the end of december of 2012. so being depositors, i think, have as much a right to expect that their deposits will be ready money because they're using them as money. so when you start telling people who have got there deposits that they are suddenly investors, they get nervvus. and so we are not close to that year, but it is a very bad precedent for the rest of europe. and certainly wouldn't want to be a depositor in the greek bank right now. it might become an investor. adam: u.s. corporations have not examined this the really, but do we face in the exposure to their
